I got a 3D printer. The Next day My wife got a new Honda CRV.
I wanted to try printing in 2 colors via swapping the filament during a
print so I decided to make her some 2 color Honda Key Fobs.
Tip: You can buy bulk bags of various sized of Key rings from Hobby
Lobby or Amazon. They are great to have around for lots of different
